Bacteria: the Benign, the Bad and the Beautiful

Image
The author and curator of the Virtual Museum of Bacteria, Dr. Trudy M. Wassenaar, has published a popular science book:
"Bacteria: The Benign, the Bad, and the Beautiful". It introduces bacteria's diverse, microscopic world and explores thei life and behavior. Even without previous background in the subject, the book's clear, jargon-free language informs about:
- The origins and evolution of bacteria
- Some of the fundamental ways in which bacteria have shaped the world
- Bacteria commonly found in the healthy human body
- Antibiotics and the growing problem of resistance
- Marine microbiology, bacterial toxins, and enzymes
- Bacterial genetics and genomics
- Bacteria that survive in extreme environments
This comprehensive guide features custom-drawn, black-and-white illustrations by artist Karoly Farkas, and it illuminates its points through real-world examples and engaging stories. This book is of interest to students, educators, lecturers, microbiologists and friends alike.
